Day Gardner & Alveda King at Rally
ATLANTA, March 28, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- National Black Prolife leaders Day Gardner and Alveda King say that there is a terrible secret in the history of America's women.
"Abortion hurts women," says Dr. Alveda King, a national spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.
"Abortion is a brutal and atrocious killer of thousands of children daily. Their mothers leave the abortion facility hurt, maimed or otherwise damaged emotionally and physically-- while some moms have paid the ultimate price for an abortion--death," says Day Gardner, founder of National Black Pro-Life Union.
"Early feminists bravely fought to break down walls to education, voting rights and workforce opportunities," states Lila Rose, President of Live Action. "Yet despite these victories, today we find ourselves facing an extreme and pervasive attack on women, our relationships, and our children. Mother Teresa once said that "[t]he so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships." She's right.
"During Women's History Month, we celebrate women who have made great strides for humanity. Yet, we also remember the women who are silenced in the womb and denied the basic right to Life. We remember those women who are suffering from the violence of abortion and deception of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. Abortion doesn't give women equal rights. It violently violates mothers and silences girls before they are born," said Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life
The women point to a series of almost unbelievable events that reveal the harm and danger of abortion, genocide and destruction in general to women over the past decades, reaching back into the 20th century until today:

The prolife women call on Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Cecile Richards and Sister Song as concerned women. They ask: "What better time than Women's History Month to open up genuine dialogue?"
